From the Golden Gate Bridge to Alcatraz, San Francisco boasts many iconic locations, but street photographer Garry Bowden will tell you that the best representation of the city comes from the people who call it home. His walking tour leads you through some of San Francisco's vibrant neighborhoods, as well as Alamo Square park, to give a unique perspective on its culture.

Ongoing Photography Lesson
Throughout the afternoon, Garry answers your photography-related questions and explains tricks for taking the best possible street photos.
Camera in hand, Garry Bowden walks the streets of San Francisco in search of stories—specifically those of the city's many colorful residents.

Garry's portraits have been collected in multiple books, and lauded by press outlets including the Huffington Post.
